Skin I choose to live in
Skin I lose when living
Skin we love we feel
Skin we hate we ****
Skin some old some young
Skin some sold some hung
Skin the largest ***** on our body
Skin the largest reason we're divided
Skin a pigment of our imagination
Skin a figment of our imagination
Skin your skin my skin feels the same
Skin my skin your skin tales of shame
Skin in it we mourn we cry
Skin in it we born we die
Skin that shields my soul
Skin that takes control
Skin we must look beyond
Skin just a phenomenon
Skin your skin my skin bruce alike
Skin your skin my skin same at night

The Concrete Jungle Book
Mario Cervantes Feb 2016
I'm from where bedtime stories
are gun shots in the streets
I'm from where my history is
darker than underneath your sheets
where theirs billion dollar lottery's
homeless people and starving kids
without any shoes on their feetsss
Ignorance allow me to speak freely
cuz u can't cry 4 help in a world that is empty
leave da hood I promise you'll think clearly
cause half of us won't make it past 23
born into a system of oppression so unfairly  
where you can pay me by the hour 7.50
but can't pay me enough to come early
I'am from the concrete jungle you call city
I guarantee any place that u see me
will feel up way past legal capacity
too bad I'm from where success is just a theory
where you can mob,steal,**** & never feel guilty
but when judgment day comes who will really

Brave Hearts
Mario Cervantes Jan 2016
. Deaths like a tsunami, but with love its just
                                a wave
My darkness seemed endless, but with her its a .                            cozy cave
    In love we risk it all, like freedom to a
Don't be afraid to fallow your heart towards
                       what you crave
Not everyone can love cause not everyone
                              is brave

Infinite love
Mario Cervantes Jan 2016
In every life we find each other
Alone at night our souls will scatter
We'll try our best to peace together
The broken wing & gorgeous feather
I'll always love her even if I hate her
And if we die I'll see her later

This **** ............................................. I reconsidered
The more money the more problems that get delivered
I'm a snake but you'll never catch me slither
I'm a bank the money flows in like a river
I'm a tank in war destroying the modern ******
I'm a thank the lord 4 making me even richer
I'm a rank some more and then I'll reconsider
I'm a beast at heart a lyrical Picasso at this art
I'm a million miles a head you billion dollar fake
So **** what you think & give back the money you take
And leave alone the hard working money I make
And sit back and take a hit like a sack
Man I'm a poet the more u hear the more u know it
I'm a profit a million here no need to show it
I got one shot at life & I'll be ****** if I blow it
Mario Cervantes Apr 2016
Your cutting through my flesh like Thunder and lightning cuts through the sky
Splitting apart  the night as my mind takes flight my heart asks why
Should you complain about fire when your holding water do you like the pain
Oh is it because you wear a chain of rain so heavy it hurts your brain
To Water-down your regrets with tears and the metal to keep you from escaping
Through this whole that is gaping but you're too busy on your knees scraping
The thoughts that linger like why did I put a ring on her finger
Love as a brother or hate has a sister either way you're a sinner
Bound by faith to follow the same trail of tears of those before you
Listen to my words don't let them fool you let them free you
And rest in peace in loving memory of a broke mentality
Rewriting history in hopes we create a more just society
In which our children and children's children could be happy
Cause were in a pivotal moment in time so don't get sloppy
Because you freestyle the present but then forget to plan the future
I refuse to do nothing as my people get butchered so here's my signature
It doesn't matter what place you're in today it's about what place you finish
And when they take your money remember your soul will not diminish

Love in Space
Mario Cervantes Mar 2016
You're like the earth so full of wonders
Yet I'm like the moon a field of craters
You always turn alway never to stay
But I stay loyal never looking away
We dance around while planets sing
Without you ___ I have nothing

Winter Wind
Mario Cervantes Feb 2017
I was born inside the winter wind
The cold used to be my only friend
And as the night filled with sin
Shadows followed me with a grin
And a glare that pierced my skin
Within my bones would rattle
A frightened child thrown into battle
I was five and scared to death
Making clouds out of my breath
To hide in the fog that I had left
As the cold wind held me tight
I made friends with the night

Mario Cervantes Mar 2016
I cannot begin to understand
The pressure of being a woman
A portal between spiritual & living
The beauty that's far beyond
A miracle that no man can
The gift that keeps on giving
You nurtured and cared for me
As we formed inside your precious wombs
We've all felt your warm embrace
So let no man say what you can't be
Leave those ancient doubts in tombs
Show them you can with beauty & grace
Take control & hold on to your dreams
Lay it all on the line go to any lengths
Because one day will come to test
In a world where nothing is what it seems
They will try to take your strengths
But you will always love the best
Happy  International Women's Day
Little editing at the end I was in satisfied

You can walk a mile in my shoes
But can you walk a mile with Jesús
Can u choose to change your views
Wake up and refuse to hit the snooze
Grind as if you had nothing left to lose
Can you put down the juice as an excuse
To defuse and soothes but never smooths
Cuz at night my street turn into Zoos
The loose screws confuse us on the news
While u indulge in pleasure instead of truths
That only proves abuse when you ******
So I ask are those ***** really balloons
Are those jules worth the abuse
You bump and bruise who's to accuse
Tell me before the wounds turn into tombs
Jesús on the second line is pronounced in Spanish (Hey-soos)

Heart brake hotel
Mario Cervantes Feb 2017
Let's build bridges instead of walls
More knowledge to beat the odds
Start teaching them how to crawl
Teach'em not to out run the law
If you need god give him a call
There's no first class to heaven
No coach seats to hell
No such thing as freedom
Don't ask and don't tell
A life that's uncertain
With dreams that turn stale
Sometimes you need to jump
Before they set you up to fail
Find out if you can fly
See what life has to unveil
Pull the curtain down from sky
You and I will soon prevail
If you fall then try again
Life's a ladder we all scale
Cause gold flows in our veins
While tears wash sins in jail
The reward is worth the pain
At the Heart brake hotel

Lost at Sea
Mario Cervantes Feb 2016
.          When I was lost at sea
                 I wasn't hungry
                 I wasn't thirsty
                 How could I be
        If water was all I could see
                  I wasn't mad
                   I wasn't sad
                We can all agree
       A final smile in abundant glee
                   I didn't swear
                    I didn't care
                At last I'am free
All I needed was for you to be with me
Happy Valentine's Day

My Dear Wildcard Lover
Mario Cervantes Feb 2016
I dare you to step out of the norm
I dare you to find love in a storm
His like summer days keep you warm
I'm like winter days and freezing cold
But I would never leave for the world
When times get hard I'll still hold
My heart in my hand for you to reach
My body, soul and mind for you to teach
You felt like a sunset by the beach
So beautiful yet so brief
Why must night be such a thief
Why must deaf be a relief
Why couldn't you take me as I am
Why should I even bother to give a ****
Did I forget who I am finally a man
Who stands alone through the pains
A free slave to love without chains
Waterfalls cut deeper than hurricanes
So why must we both pretend
The reason I'm not your friend
Is the reason where I descend
I'm either stupid or simply clever
My dear wild card lover
Never started but now its over

Let's Talk
Mario Cervantes Mar 2016
I lost myself somewhere in the process
of all of this nonsense
So let's talk about why there's
less kids with Deploma's
and more people becoming homeless
more kids without fathers  
More female *** models
Then actual rule models  
Lets talk about shot town
Let's talk talk about my town
Lets talk about your town
Let's lets talk about Mike Brown
Lets talk about our rights
Lets talk about dark nights
Girls  twerking just to be seen
Instead of workin to be Queens
We are on the verge of extinction
U stop me just cuz I fit a description
Oh wait this is just repetition
MalcolmX,Dr.King were the new addition

Kingdom of Heaven
Mario Cervantes Apr 2016
I'm going into your kingdom of heaven
God forgave me ever since I was seven
I grew up way too young around the age of eleven  
They articulate the things that I've done
And say it couldn't of been done that young
I was outsmarting my competition
While you were too busy paying tuition
I was snatching up grown b!&$
Counting money while they were counting my inches
And I am not like the rest of you fools
I don't play by anyone's rules
You wear ice I rock Jules
I'm breaking all of y'alls rules

I'm breaking all of y'alls rules
If you don't get the hint find the clues
This **** is smooth like some jazz
But it's hits the heart like some blues
Bull's-eye one shot to the heart from my tools
Blow the smoke from barrel until it cools
You could be the greatest alive the day I die
I have no competition you'll forever be a runner up if we tie
So why am I still wasting my time
And trying to act like I'm kind
When I'm really out of my mind
There is no such thing that I won't rhyme
Wow lm at the peak of my prime
Looking down at the world thinking it's finally mine

I don't stop until I see the bones from the flesh that I tear
I think deaths catching up I've been running since last year
I was in a desperate moment Im feeling scared
So don't be surprised if you see me pulling out all my hair
And falling down on my knees, I see the air and once again going into a deep state of prayer
Forgive me god that for that I'm a sinner  
I did, some wrong, I chose the good life of a winner
The rope I'm walking on just seems to get thinner
And now I've fallen down I'm outside of your kingdom, but they won't let me enter
I'm begging on my niece just please let me in I didn't do nothing
But that's when God comes up to me and say son you've sinned
I've given you plenty of chances to do the right thing
But you're not fooling anyone that's when I wake up and hear my cell phone ring

I picked up and a deep voice says to me this is the devil
My boy, I can take you to a whole another level
You name it and you'll have it if you want it, I'll buy it
So what do I have to do and he said just let me take over your body
I'll give you immense amounts of wealth and turn you into somebody
And to think of how famous you'll  be because right now you ain't nobody
You sound tempting and all
And you only live once yeah, I know
But the afterlife is what I truly dream for
So you're going to have to do better than that I want more
I want my **** to be fly, I want my **** to be hard-core
I want millions of fans to buy tickets in advance
To shout out my name, I want my body enhance
And every bed-b@
$ on me without any romance
My boy, your wish shall be my command
I just need a sample of your blood and a signature here
Good boy, now here comes the part I think you should fear

I changed my mind suddenly I can see clear
But god It was too late and you were no where near
I'm in a desperate moment right now, but this time the sound is being blocked from my ears
The most precious thing in the world right now I can't hear.
I can't hear!
I've falling down on my knees, I see the air
and once again I'am going into a deep state of prayer
Forgive me god that for that I am a sinner
I did some wrong, I chose the good life of a winner
The rope I'm walking on just seems to get thinner
And now I've fallen down I'm outside of your kingdom
I'm trying to get in but they won't let me enter
I'm begging on my niece just please let me in I didn't do nothing
But that's when God comes up to me and say son you've sinned
I've given you plenty of chances to do the right thing
But you're not fooling anyone that's when I wake up and hear my cell phone ring

I pick up and a deep voice says to me this is the devil
My boy, I can take you to a whole nether level
Let me stop you there
I ain't going no where
And just **** what you will give me honest, I don't care
Leave me alone go on and leave here
But can't you see that finding another like you will be rear
Signs signaling caution asking me to beware
But F^! The ******* I don't have time to care
I know God is almighty with him I won't have to be scared
I want to choose the honest life and finally be sincere
And if agin you ever try to get too close or too near
I'll make sure that your punishment is  severe

Foolish boy who the hell do you think that I'am
Honestly, you were worthy now I don't give a ****
Your worthless a pathetic fool
Try it yourself and just see how you do
You won't get far and to think I could've made you a star
With huge mansions private jets and dozens of exotic cars
I mothaf
%king mind blowing like the wizard of Oz
You're mistaken, I'm more like a killer at-large.  
And not accepting me will be a big mistake on your part
I don't want to destroy lives I just wanted to create art
And blow your mind away with lyrics coming straight from my heart
And share with the world what I love to do the most
Even if it means becoming one of the devils hosts
It's a Long story but  I think it's pretty cool

Your the golden goddess
The fuel to the madness
That grows deep inside us
An Olympic flame so bright
That burns the rain all night
While I melt in your delight
Your eyes shimmer like the sea
So radiant it's hard to even see
You me let it be or set me free
Into a deep painful pleasure
Better than any hidden treasure  
So will you dare to adventure
Beyond the walls that segregate
Regret like fall in love instead of hate
I'll wait but what if tomorrow is too late
What if love had found you faith
Or has faith not found you love
Regardless just take a look above
As heaven looks down jealous of
The beauty the gold the grace
You're eyes you're lips you're face
Replace every star I see in space
I got  pomes for the days on this  topic but one at a time

Love and Hate
Mario Cervantes May 2016
Take my hand as we walk together to the nearest star
Trust me with our love it won't ever seem that far
Unless your love is just a scene of a lucid dream
A clever scheme a nightmare impossible to scream
Let's redeem our vowels take a trip to the clouds
Rip off our shrouds dive off the edge into the crowd
Put down your doubts lay out your heart
Just play your part, like a priceless piece of art
Beautiful yet so smart my Venus and my fire
My universal desire coming down to the wire
You inspire the wildflower to grow in my garden
As our love hardens I begin to feel uncertain
Remember graduation what seemed like forever
Was an endeavor my first true wildcard lover
You think I'm clever when ever I talk about the future
I think you're cuter so for every wound I'll be your suture
Even the earths curvature couldn't keep me from loving you
But is it true all of the crazy things that you do
The birds eye view I had showed me the truth
I had wisdom in my youth to cover-up and sooth
Prehaps to smooth the tension I couldn't mention
So I waited oh so patient for your confession
A recession of aggression grow cast by hate
While you participate on your date I try to locate
What's now my fate but It was too late
Love and fate

Wondering Soul
Mario Cervantes Apr 2016
I've forgotten where I belong
I forgot where I went wrong
Where am I from what is my home
I can not stand being alone
Homes wherever I'm with you
And now I see how that is true
There's plenty of fish in the sea
But you're the only one for me
As you swim away flashbacks appear
When we got high the atmosphere
The stars were the final frontier
My watery eyes let out a final tear
As I was letting go of your fingertips
I remembered the taste of your lips
It was a cherry scent that had me bent
To a certain extent I couldn't prevent
My knees got weak my heart gave in
You thought I wasn't worth saving
You need it love from me and her
You had us fooled but now I'm sure
You just preferred we coexist
Let's all just kiss no I insist
Wouldn't that be a pleasant twist
The lust for love you can't resist
You needed me was just a fact
Your love for her was to abstract
Your curiosity became a curse
Prehaps for better or for worse
But without you I am homeless
And without love I am hopeless
A mere wondering soul lost
Willing to find love at all cost

Fool's Gold
Mario Cervantes Feb 2016
Your loves fool's gold
So precious yet so cold
You call & put me on hold
I wait knowing I'll grow old
I'll love you with a blindfold
For you I'll even sell my soul
& become a slave to your eyes
Like wise I'll believe all your lies
Make love from sunset to sunrise
My love for you is beyond the skies
It's unmeasurable with an infinite size
I'm infatuated by your loves grand prize
Fool's gold is when you love some one who's only using you , and you know but you still love  them.

Mario Cervantes Jun 2018
Like a dream this story is very unclear where it begins but what is clear is The feeling of weightlessness. An endless  exploration of your mind and soul. A place that can't be described with words you would have to experience it for yourself. Today's a night unlike any other night today I woke up in a different body in a different world in a different time in space.

Yesterday I woke up running for my life. A chase that went on land and water. The thing that was chasing me was so much slower than I was but way stronger than me. The rush of adrenaline seemed to slow down time. As I got away he seem to get closer and closer. But luckily the future had advanced my biology enabling me to swing across buildings almost by second nature.

It seems I woke up to a future in which humans had evolved to hybrid. Our DNA took the best traits of any combinations of animals and , planets. There were no average humans left on earth and that's assuming this is still earth.
Why am I running for my life and who is this beast trying to **** me. I guess I have more questions than answers.

I guess I should wake up soon right, wrong. Why should I wake up I've never felt more alive in my life. I am being chased by a 12 foot giant that can move just as fast as me. And I felt invincible mentally and incredibly fast. I had no weakness no fears just confidence.

I've never felt this way in my reality. See In my old life I knew exactly what I was going to do every day and every night was exactly the same I was trapped. The only thing different is the mind control devices that surrounded me when I went to sleep when I woke up. Viral videos, social media that made me antisocial,political, virtual games it was the same every day over and over again. Prehaps the best thing to happen to me in two years was when my dog died.

The day he died I cried like a little kid of joy because I knew he didn't have to suffer anymore going through the same thing every day every time. The same food, water and backyard trapped forever.  Am I talking about the dog or me. I've never dug a hole who knew the roots of a tree could grow that far and deep. Was that experience foreshadowing my life somehow. Well I end up at the bottom of a hole knowing that there was the whole world out there for me to discover for me to live, love, and laugh.
In life we are given choices. I admit I've made a lot of bad decisions. Decisions that could have meant the difference between where I am now and where I could have been. Imagine walking on a tight rope and knowing every step could be your last. If life was the rope and the steps were choices. I’d probably be plummeting to my death right now. Our decisions whether you know it or not slowly shift reality and propel us on to different time lines. Different timelines means different versions of ourselves some more successful than others.

Everyone knows that if you go back in time you shouldn't touch anything because it could affect the future it's called the butterfly effect. So if the present is the past of the future could we cost A butterfly effect. Maybe what I'm trying to say is that the some impact we have today is the same impact we've always had in the past. The power to change the outcome of the future is now. We all dream of changing the world but change begins within ourselves.
✌️ If you read it and Like it  can you figure out how I wrote it?  Or where I wrote it either or?

Heaven is a holy place a land of grace
Now check the bass as a smile fills my face
With dreams, hopes, goals of better ways
To slay and mold the world like Clay
I wish I had time to play but until that day
I'll look up to God pray hoping he'll say
"Open your eyes my son and finally see,
The inner workings that I plan will be
The roots to your tree, the key to live free
Iove instead of hate dreams to make you great
Await beyond the Gate".

— The End —
